Wedmore Court, London N19

Although it will probably never attain Grade I Listed status, the slightly retro Scandinavian style of this small North London private estate has stood the test of time rather better than the Toytown architecture that was typical of 1980s and 1990s speculative housing developments.

Constructed in 1986 on land formerly owned by British Rail, Wedmore Court comprises just over 50 houses and flats. The estate is run by Wedmore Court Management, a limited company wholly-owned by the residents, who also own the freehold of the flats through a sister company, Wedmore Gardens Limited. The estate has its own website www.wedmorecourt.com.
